How to make your wedding day unique



Rose Hill Plantation Wedding Nashville North Carolina Carolina Blue

If you haven’t had the chance to meet Stephanie and Merritt, you are truly missing out. This sweet couple truly are some of the sweetest people I have met! And it definitely helped my self-esteem that Merritt likes to give high fives after I get some amazing shots and say “you ROCKED that”. I couldn’t help but be like “YEAH! BUT IT WAS ALL YOU GUYS!”. Best hype couple EVER. His response when I told them they were amazing? “She is the amazing one. She looks so incredible in her dress!”. My heart melted guys!

It always amazes me how fast time flies. It felt like it was just yesterday that we were at Rose Hill Plantation doing their engagement session and then all of a sudden it was their wedding day! Stephanie and Merritt were incredibly bubbly and lovey at their engagement session so I knew their big day was going to be epic!  Andddd…. IT WAS! Stephanie described their wedding as southern, elegant, and FUN! Clearly it definitely was and I have some epic reception shots to prove it.

Their Carolina blue color scheme was such a refreshing spring/summer pop of color that elevated their southern elegance theme. Can you believe these details?! Their wedding at Rose Hill Plantation was something out of a magazine! Oh and the officiants? They had baptized Stephanie and watched them both grow up. How special is that? Heart is still melted over here!

And don’t even get me started on these florals! Perfect Palette Floral took their wedding vision in a fresh and elegant way! See for yourself because you need to see all of this truly stunning wedding!
